    Features requiring Customization 🔧

    1. Categorization of pages based on tags using the categorization menu present in the left side of the header.

      NOTE: This feature requires the API call to Keywords vocabulary /++api++/@vocabularies/ which is by default only available to authenticated users. Currently, this menu is only visible when the user is authenticated. You can make changes in Header.jsx as per the requirements.

    2. Footer section links including social handles are available but requires additional customization. Change the code in Footer.jsx as per the requirements.

    3. The Try for free button can be customized in the Header.jsx as per the requirements. For example: It can be used to route to /login route.

    Installation 🚀

    1. Create a new volto project, if you don't have one.

    2. Add the following packages to the mrs.developer.json file of your volto project.

        "volto-educal-hero-block": {
          "url": "",
          "https": "",
          "package": "@plone-collective/volto-educal-hero-block",
          "branch": "main",
          "path": "src"
        "volto-block-banner": {
          "url": "",
          "https": "",
          "package": "@plone-collective/volto-block-banner",
          "branch": "main",
          "path": "src"
        "volto-educal-theme": {
          "url": "",
          "https": "",
          "package": "@plone-collective/volto-educal-theme",
          "branch": "main",
          "path": "src"
    3. Now link the add-on in the volto project:

      1. Make sure the private field is set to true in the volto project's package.json. As yarn workspaces can only be enabled in private projects.

      2. Add src/addons/* as array members under the workspaces property in the volto project's package.json.

      3. Add @plone-collective/volto-educal-theme as an array member under the addons property in the volto project's package.json.

      Finally, the volto project's package.json should include the following lines:

        "private": true,
        "workspaces": ["src/addons/*"],
        "addons": ["@plone-collective/volto-educal-theme"]


      • You just need to add this in your volto project's package.json file and not in any of the add-ons package.json file.
      • For a more detailed guide, on how to install an add-on in volto visit here.
    4. Change this line in src/theme.js of the volto project.

      - import 'semantic-ui-less/semantic.less';
      + import '@plone-collective/volto-educal-theme/semantic.less';
        import '@plone/volto/../theme/themes/pastanaga/extras/extras.less';

      You can refer the change here.

    5. Bootstrap the Plone API backend. Alternatively, you can visit the official documentation for other installation options.

    6. Run yarn to install the node modules. 📦

    7. Run yarn start command to start the volto server! 🍻
